Brite Winter 2015 Lineup Announced

Judging by the weather out there, we're under two months out from this year's Brite Winter. With more than 60 bands lighting up the music festival in 2015 — including Maps & Atlases and Welshly Arms in the headlining slots — this year's installment feels bigger than the increasingly popular events that came before it. 

“We increased our music budget by 50 percent to allow us to draw bigger talent,” Program Director Justin Markert says. “We’re also throwing some new ideas into the mix this year by booking a number of hip-hop and electronic artists to diversify the festival and fill a void from past years.”

The festival will take place on Feb. 21 across eight stages throughout Ohio City. More information here
